The Heart of Napa
Naturally, popping into the square in the middle of Napa is a must! … there’s a good chance it’ll be tranquillity to the extreme by day, and every chance that somethings happening by night, … and supplying a traditional welcome for morning coffee, ice cream, afternoon teas, snacks or a just a glass of wine or a maybe a G&T, is the massive and world famous Square Bar & Cafe, on the cobble stones, overlooking the north entrance to the monastery … Bliss!
I met Panicos when he opened over 30 years ago, and he’s become a really good friend, and it’s still one of my favourite places to sit and watch the world walk by whilst enjoying a coffee and a snack … There’s a varied snack menu which includes; Crispy Salads, Toasties, Garlic Bread, Cyprus Specials, Pastas, Burgers, BBQ Ribs, Sea Foods, Chicken Wings, Mozzarella Sticks and their specialities include Pizzas, and my fav the Shared Platters …
But tbh, The Square Bar is probably better known for the entertainment and live music played here every night from 8.30 pm ’til late. That’s mostly down to Peter and Rob, of the legendary ‘Live Lounge’ Cardiff fame, who partnered up with Panicos in 2014 to bring you the very best in live bands, duo’s and solo artists … Check out their Reviews, oh and, go early to avoid disappointment, coz following all health and safety protocols this place gets really busy! … I caught the Revolverlites there recently, check them out here
The bar provides an unrivalled selection of both local and imported Gins, Whiskey, Vodka, you wont find anywhere else, Rum’s, Tequila, Brandies and well, just about every spirit imaginable, including of course your fav tipple, and some awesome classic and speciality cocktails .. oh, and check out their nightly drinks offers . crazy !!! … I love the Mojitos, made to perfection, the Daiquiris just as cool, the Margaritas omg! so moorish, but their faves have to be the Blueberry Collins or the Godfather Part ll, oh, and the Porn Star Martini, just to die for, and their Old Fashioned quite Apt, as this square has been here for years.
Oh, and as it’s pure chill out here by day, why not enjoy an excellent selections of Wines from Cyprus, Greece, Spain, France and Italy to mention but a few. Naturally as you’re in the eastern Mediterranean, is there anything better than enjoying some exotic flavours to share with you friends, cooled to your liking and enhanced with a shot, 😉 Mmmm!
Big Screens Live Sports
This is one of the biggest bars in Napa with two massive projector screens and flat screens everywhere, the atmosphere, sometimes electric, so its a great place to watch the live sports … with table service only these days, all credit cards accepted and there’s Free Wifi … and lots of fans of both types 😉
The demographics of the place makes it an excellent meeting place, attracting everyone from 18 to 88, of all nationalities, including locals and residents who love a bit of live music from top cover bands from the UK and Europe, every night! This theme is quite unique in Napa, and with extensive experience in hosting your party or special event or business meeting they welcome enquiries and provide an excellent catering service!
